HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11803
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Lysine-specific demethylase 8
  1. JmjC domain-containing protein 5
  2. Jumonji domain-containing protein 5
Gene Name KDM8
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Histone demethylase required for G2/M phase cell cycle progression. Specifically demethylates dimethylated 'Lys-36' (H3K36me2) of histone H3, an epigenetic repressive mark, thereby acting as a transcription activator. Regulates expression of CCNA1 (cyclin-A1), leading to regulate cancer cell proliferation.
